JAMS/NAFCM Community Mediation Grant

The JAMS Foundation and National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM) are pleased to announce the seventh Community Mediation Mini-Grant Program (“Program”). The purpose of this year’s Program is to fund the development and refinement of innovative and emerging community mediation center services that:

Involve young adults (21-35 years old) in addressing issues of race, ethnicity or economic marginalization.  This is an opportunity to focus on how to engage and bring into the life of the center the energy of young adults (21-35 years old) and in turn create opportunities to address institutional or community conflicts that arise because of racial, ethnic or economic marginalization. 

To be considered for this two-year $24,000 grant opportunity you must first complete the Solicitation of Interest (Si\I) step. 

This step invites you to submit a two to three-page short answer proposal for review.  There is no request for attachments, a structured budget or an in-depth justification of your work.
